Last night, a remarkable 101 year woman died in southern Wisconsin, her family with her and having justly earned her reward! She raised five children and outlived two of them and two husbands, as well as outliving some of her own grandchildren and all of her contemporary friends. She survived having four sons serving in the Korean conflict at once, and "prayed them all home safely".
She loved all who came in contact with her and always had kind and encouraging words for all of us. Her eyes twinkled as she would reminsence about times gone by, whether decades ago or hours ago at the annual family reunions. She fed the thirst for more historical knowledge with her own unique perspective on simple inventions, like saltine crackers, or modern marvels, like airplanes and submarines.
She was always amazing and always will be!!!! VIRSC 1905-2007
